Of {Burlap and Twine} and {Letters and Such}

I am really loving burlap these days.  The more I work with it, the more I like it!  It's so forgiving, you can make all sorts of mistakes and STILL make a burlap project look awesome.  I recently made a cute Advent Ladder and added some burlap bows to it to accessorize.  It is such a great way to add some country flair to your decor. 

And all of the {scraps} can be used to make other cool projects.

I also am loving twine.  SUCH fun stuff.  It looks great no matter where you put it and also goes REALLY well with burlap.

So today I'm sharing two fun projects in ONE post today.  One with burlap, the other with burlap and twine.
AND...I don't know if I've told you this before either...{I am obsessed with letters}.  And words.  Both in REAL life and REAL decor.  So I combined letters and burlap and came up with some really cute ones. At least I think so!!

All I did was cut the burlap in long strips and then wrapped them around each letter (with hot glue to keep it there!) till they were all covered.  And back to the coolness of burlap, it really didn't matter how I did it, it looked awesome!!  Here's how my cute lil' letters turned out.

Don't ya just love 'em?

 And here are the cute little trees I doctored up with burlap, twine, and cranberries!!

And here's all of them put together...
{this is not how I plan to keep them...just kind of 
a way to display them}  I have another project planned
for the letters!!  

 I can't WAIT to show you what I'm eventually going to do
with these babies!!
Be sure to check back so I can show ya!

Linking up to these GREAT parties as always

Very cute!! Love it. I recently purchased burlap and can't wait to use it. Have you noticed that the burlap you are using will fray? If so, how do you stop that? I think mine will fray.
